As nuclear power utilities strive to stream-line their organizations, while improving outage and refurbishment project performance, the necessity for effective relationships and interaction between utility and service-providers becomes paramount.  Successful integration of Service-Provider into the Utility’s environment is achievable and has been demonstrated.  Early and extensive engagement in front-end planning, single-point-of-continuity, and the use of integrated execution teams, are some of the critical elements for ensuring success.  The paper discusses Task-Leadership Integration at the three levels of; utility executive level ‘need-statement’; a ‘why is this important’ discussion; and as a ‘thoughtful tutorial’ on its features and practice.
